This is a digital copy of a book Ihal was preserved for generations on libraiy shelves before il was carefully scanned by Google as part of a projecl 
to make Ihe world's books discoverable online. 

It has sm-vived long enough for the copyright (o expire and the book lo enter Ihe public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright lenn has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country lo country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to Ihe past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult lo discover. 

Maiks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a Iibrai7 and finally to you.

use of public domain materials for Ihese pur|X)ses and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain aHiibaiion The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring thai what you are doing is legal. Do not assume thai just 
because we believe a book is in Ihe public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other

England, 100 miles went of St. Dnmingo and 90 Eiileti Boutli of Cuba, 445 
miloA north oi Carthngontk aud 540 miJee from Colon. 

Jamaroa ia bounded on the north nnd eitat by that part of Ibo Ojiribbeaa

The TabLndH of Grand ami Little Cayman, with Cnymnn Brae, are Bitnated, 
Ihy former nbout 15G mites nnd thofwn tatter about 110 miles north- wost of 
Negril Point. The Pedro Bank and Caya commence about 40 milefl south of 
Portland Point and PKieud westerly for 100 miles ; this bank ia abuut thr«!- 
fonrths of the aize of Jamaica. Th&Morant Cayn are S'j inilert from Morant 
Point in aeouth-caeterly direction. Theeceapsral lalandH and oayn, together 
with the Turks &nd Oaicos lalandH, nre all dependencies of the Island of 
Jamaica. 

The nearest part of the Continent of Amctiea to Jamoion is Cape Qarciaa 
ii Dice, in tbe Mosquitto Territory, which ia 310 miloe south-wc»it of tha 
wcpit-eud of Jamaica. 

From its centifll situation afl regards the otber West Indian Islamis and thd 
fact of ite being intht direct track between Europe, the United States and the 
lathmufl of Panruutt, Jaiuaica caTuiolbctfcmiahadTantagefl andconvcnienoes 
for Irwle and commerce between these points which are nnt to he found 
fljaewhere. Should afihipcanalnnitingthe Allanlicnnd Pacific crer be ccii- 
fltnioted Jamaiea wLl undoubtedly be a nooceBary branch of that cnormona 
uudortjikiri;^, and must largely bene^L by the increased tiTiflic (hat will podi 
in this din^etroii. 

The aboriginal name of Jaraitica was Xiti/naea. a word supposed to imply 
an overflowing abundance of rivers. Bcidgcfl tella iib that the name is d(v 
rived from two Liiiau wordft, Cb/iliafiau signifying water and Mfikin wood. 
The compound eoimd would approach to Chab-makia ; nnd hormouiied to Ihd 
Spanish ear^ wouJd be Oho-nmkiat corrupted by us to Jamaica -" denoting & 
land coFered with wood and, therefore, watered by shaded nTulotej or, in 
other words, fertile.'* 

The ejctremc length of Jamaioa ie 144 milca^ita greatest width in 49 mile*

Pai\>chi.i] BoardH of Clai'cndon, Manchester, llaintver and Westniorel&ad, On tlie 
15th Auguat a despatch from the Secrotair of State fr>r the Cohmiea announdnj 
the assent of the Queen to the IWt Relief Law waH piililjnht.'tl in the Gazette. The 
Secretary of State thviH wrote, for the information of thi: pclitionens agjunit the 
Law : " 1 am anahlc to agrve in the ^ipinion of the jieliliuiiera that HUpurviaion and

the previously elating law- Ab to the objection tluit a nontinated Board should in 
any way have the power of sanctiottirigexpendituriF, I may I'errmrk that thia is what 
is allowed within certain limits, and so far ae funds are nvailabK to many fnnih 
tionarieft, and that the pmciAdings of the Bonrd of Supervision will be as liablo to 
be qiientioned as thiiHe of any fu^ctiouaryj includiug tht fiovemer of the Oolor»." 
The <JovL'mor in pnMiKhing the deBpatch exprepxcd ^^ the ho]i(' ami belief that ths 
action of the Ceutnd Boanl r-f Suptniainu would bo in no w:iy vexations towardi 
Parochial Bnards; but would mthertend to support them, an'Hi> help them to pJaoe 
poor relief on a satisfactory footing in nil pjirishes, witbtnit iimJuly burdening th* 
rBtep:.yers.^^ His Eiceltency added that it would \ie " liis aim to nnminate to *b* 
Board of Supervision gentlemen who won Id be ciutsidi?red to lie repreHentativsi 
both of Parochial Bonidn and of the comznujiity, and who it may l>e anticipated 
woulJ conduct their duties with ability and in a conciliatory wpirit" 

In the firat fortnight of tite month of June heavy miTiB hailfallen which had pro- 
dnced flcmtU in the poiithem jiarfs of the island and hacl done much dama^ to ths 
KMwIft and railwfty ; and on the I9th and 20th August a severe cyclone passed ovar 
the island. Great danu^;ewrm done to property, cs^iecially to the banaiin plantations. 
Soon after the rains Sir Anthrmy Musgrave (late Oovenior of Januiica) arrived on 
a vij^it to his coffee estate in Kt. Andrew. Before leaving the cohmy acnmplimentaFy 
addrcw was presented to him by the citizens of Kingptou. In his reply Hia Bxcel- 
lencA- flnid : " It is a great pleasure to me to have even an liurried opportunity for 
seeing the place where 1 la1>i>ui'ed among yon for nearly nix yenrs, to the best of my 
judgment and ability^ for the public goocL And it is gratifying to hear the con- 
fidence which you express that results largely beneficial niay be expected from mnoh 
that was set on foot during that period." 

The Con^missison on education presented their finaL report to the Governor in 
August and it was published in the Gazette for general iufomuilion. The moat im- 
portant of the recommendations of the Comniiesion wtre (1) that "the proviaion of 
Buitable residences should be deenied, at least in country districts a necessary com- 
plement to the emoluments of teachers,'^ and that grants for the purpose should be 
mode by government ou the same principle that now gorem the grants-in aid of 
school buildings ; {2) that a system of superannuation allowance and gratuities for 
teachers, to a strictly limited extent, should be adopted ; (3) that attendance at 
school should be made compulsory within the ages of 7 and I'i ; (4) that school feea 
^onld be abolished ; (6) that a Central Board of C^ducation to be "deliberative, eon-

On thu ] 1th of September follQwing the Legislative Couneil niet, when the Go-

provide for the anticipated deficit as well ba to remedy certain defectq Iti the system

largely exceed the eatintatea that the amount of the deficit had been fully met and 
a eurpluH of tT>,500 would be carried to the credit of the year 18«8-80- This being 
ao His Excellency would ^* refrain from proposin? any angmentati^m or alteration

Hyndic-itu whit'h had made propoi&als for its [kMri:liJiSL'. The pro|>i*Bed tranaactioB

It H ris forcibly urged afterwards that at the tiitje of the eleotion the terma of tlu

tii*n of the hour. On the 2^ml April, Mr. Hockinj^, tho Attorney General of tifl 
Colony, 'hiul Mr C ^, Fanpiharson, memlier for Wentmerelaud and Hanover, who 
had been ^ent an Delegates to consult with the Secretary of State iu regard to th« 
sale, returned to the Island and, on the following day, the Uuvernnicnt puhllBhed in 
the fiazetto a despatch from the Secretary of State rebitive to tho scheme, togethfiT 
with the provisioned agreement signed by MosHra. Hocking and Farqiiiiaraon oft 
behalf irf the (ioveniment of Jamaica, and by Mr, Wesson on behalf of the Syndl' 
Gate. The last paragraph of the Secretary of State's despatch v.iA as fullowH ; — 

" It should, however, be diHtinctly underetoud that I do m>t accept any reapon- 
r.ihility fi>r the schenie, nor do 1 press its acceptance upou the Council. The ex- 
perience of other colonies points to the conclusion that it ia generally more advan- 
tigeous for a GoverTiment to construct Hallways than to grant concessions to Cont- 
panies for that purpose, even where the GODcession does not, as in this case, include 
tiie parting with a flourishing Railway in exchange for a security which muat be 
more or I«s of a speculative character. The schema of constructing a Railwaj
